About Academic Publishing

Based in the U.S., Acadademic Publishing is an international company, with our Editor in Norway, our Editorial Director in Italy and Editorial Boards that span the globe. We strongly encourage open dialougue between nations and cultures, collaborating with scholars around the world. This brings to each and every issue of our journals a broad and sometimes different perspective.

Academic Publishing focuses on specialty journals for the academic community. Our flagship publication is the
Alternative Spirituality and Religion Review (ASRR), a journal dedicated to the field of New Religious Movements and Alternative Spirituality. Drawing on the expertise of its editor, James R. Lewis, a senior scholar in the New Religions field, we bring together international scholars with varied and unusual articles and stay on top of the growing number of new releases with an expanded collection of book reviews.


The Journal of Religion & Violence (JRV) is
an interdisciplinary journal devoted to the study of religion and violence. Margo Kitts, the managing editor, brings together a rich and varied international boeard of scholars in the field. Special issues have included "Suicide: Why do people kill themselves in the name of religion?", "Violence in Africa", "Violence and Biblical Immagination", "Religion, War, and Ethics", and more. 

Together with Mark Juergensmeyer and Michael Jerryson, Margo co-founded the Comparative Approaches to Religion and Violence Group of the American Academy of Religion, and we offer a subscription discount to members. 

We also extend a subscription discount for members of The Colloquium on Violence & Religion.
